Five For Friday: Not In RRHOF, Part 4

Here is Part 4 of the list of artists that have yet to be nominated for the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame, according to Parts 5 and 6 will drop on Monday and Friday next week. The description of each is from the article as well.

  1. Country Jope & The Fish, "Vietnam Song" (NSFW LANGUAGE): San Francisco psychedelia met Berkeley social commentary in the ’60s. They were ubiquitous at festivals and on radio.
  2. Jim Croce, "I’ll Have To Say I Love You In A Song": His life was cut short before he had a chance to truly develop but the trove of hits he left behind was substantial.
  3. The Crystals, "Da Doo Ron Ron": Even more than the Ronettes, the Crystals were Phil Spector’s go-to girl group. Darlene Love and La La Brooks were (and still are) dynamic singers.
  4. Dick Dale, "Misirlou": The man invented surf guitar. That’s enough.
  5. The Damned, "Neat Neat Neat": The first bona fide British punk band, who later expanded their sound.

And that’s Five For Friday for May 20, 2022.

  1. I’m marking down Dick Dale so I can listen to him more. This us justly famous and, I gave to admit, I learned about this music from Pulp Fiction. The last one isn’t my vague but that doesn’t mean they font deserve to ve in the Hall of Fame. I just continue to be shocked especially by the fal singing group, “The Crystals”


    1. The Damned isn’t much my style, either, but they’re significant historically, and there’s no reason they shouldn’t be in.


      1. Holy crappola! My writing on my tiny cell phone is horrible! I write on this during the weekdays because I am at work. I am glad you got the gist of what I was saying!
